teams. plus first-round draft pick michael orr could face off against julius peppers, one of the nfl's best defensive tackles. with only two days to practice since their last preseason game against the jets on monday, harbaugh sees this one as a good test for his team. >> this is a really talented team, especially -- well, on both sides of the ball, but the two outside guys they have got are tremendous players. both of our tackle also really get pushed and challenged and the linebangers are fast playing guys fullbacks and tight ends are going to get challenged. a great opportunity to see how those guys do and for us to get better. >> another decision that could be based on this game is the battle for kickers. second-year kicker steve howska and rookie graham ganeau are fighting for the spot left vacant by matt stover. howska hay be edging out his opponent. he head made every field goal but gouneau missed two
including a 46-yarder against the jets. heading into tomorrow's game carolina though, harbaugh won't say who has the edge. >> we don't know, you know. we are hopeful and i think it is fair to say and everybody who is a ravens fan should be hopeful that one of these two guys can do it, because if one of these two guys can do it one more player we can keep. you go through the names and see who that guy will be. a good young player you don't and a guy that can help uses a special teams development whatever. at the same time we will not keep that player and jeopardize our chance to win games with the kicking foundation. and matt could get signed between then. you are walking a fine line and it is getting tight and something we hopefully can balance and make the right decision on. elsewhere, brandon marshal has been suspended indefinitely by his own team. the denver broncos decided to sideline their pro bowl receiver due to conduct detrimental to the team. you can see in wednesday's
